This formerly beautiful and almost untouched spot has been destroyed in attempt to please tourists. We only miss a souvenir shop on the beach now, together with a restaurant. Why couldn't this beautiful spot have been allowed to remain pristine?

We only came to Uttakleiv beach at night, when we were chasing the Northern Lights. The first night we came here, it was freezing cold and super windy, but we saw some of the lights and it was wonderful. We came here a second night,...More

Don't miss this spot, it is the must beautiful beach we have seen in norway. The combination between the grass, sea, sand and mountains is amazing.

Fantastic area for photography. Also great place to picnic. Maintained by the local people and it shows their pride in the way it is maintained and designed.

One of the best beaches in the Lofoten along with Kvalvika ... But this one can be easily reached by car. Really stunning landscape, quiet as it's a really large beach, perfect place to see the sunset, sheeps all around. Plus it's possible to hike...More

You have to pay for a parking spot which you dont have to do on a nearby Haukland beach. There is several picnic tables and fire pits. Nice sunset views, clear water, white sand and friendly sheeps. :) Another beach worth a visit.

Another wonderful Norwegian beach, not as crowded, with lots of friendly sheep wandering around along with the locals and tourists. Would really like to come back in a quieter month (not July!).

Although there is a parking charge, which there isn’t at Haukland Beach, if you plan to camp this is your beach. Lovely flat areas for your tent, picnic tables and fire pits/barbecues. But more importantly it has toilets, fresh water and a washing up station....More
